"Columbus's Food Scene" Steve Stover, Central Ohio's favorite food Expert
Steve Stover returns for another lively report on the latest news and "scandal" on the Columbus restaurant scene. Steve will tell us about 10 or more exciting new restaurants, the top new restaurant of 2015, the explosion of exciting Columbus restaurant entrepreneurs, and the decline of fine dining, plus breaking news on new restaurants coming to Columbus. He will also share his Historic Columbus Restaurants List, including Columbus restaurants that have been open for more than 25 years, and a comprehensive list of the great Columbus restaurants of the past.
Steve Stover is passionate about food. He has taught cooking for 34 years, and has reviewed restaurants and judged cooking for more than 30 years. He currently teaches cooking at the Franklin Park Conservatory and The Seasoned Farmhouse in Columbus after stints at La Belle Pomme at Lazarus, Columbus State, Sur la Table, and Faire la Cuisine. In addition, he frequently cooks for charity events and speaks to community groups all over Central Ohio.

Each year our Club sponsors 10 Service Above Self college scholarships worth $2500 each to deserving high school seniors in the Columbus City Schools. We conduct brief interviews with candidates proposed by the high schools in Columbus, focusing on their academic achievement and their commitment to community service. Galen Graham is coordinating the interview process.
The interviews this year will be on the mornings of Wednesday, April 6, and Thursday, April 7 and will be conducted by seven teams of three or four Rotarians.
Our scholarship program is one of the major activities of the Club each year, and as newer Rotarians, we want to offer you the opportunity of joining us as interviewers. We will provide interview questions and help arrange car pools to the schools. We will have more candidates than we have scholarships, so this is important work and we would very much appreciate your willingness to serve. I should also mention that listening to the stories of these talented students and how they achieved so much is often very inspirational, and is one of the best parts of the Rotary year for those who participate.
